I am getting parts off of a 52 F2. The cowl vent is complete and appears to be in good shape.
I am more familiar working with 53-56 trucks. So i am not sure how to remove the cowl vent. I removed the 4 screws from the front of the vent on the outside. I can see 4 other screws on the back side when I look up at it under the dash. How do I get them out?
Also is the handle attached to anything under the dash? And does the whole unit lift out through the vent hole from the outside?
Thanks. These cowl vents are a lot different than the vent on my 54.
They are a pain in the butt to remove but even worse when you're installing it back into a freshly painted cab.
Last Saturday, I tried again to get the cowl vent off. I could not access the 4 screws at the back of the vent. Excuse me for being so thick but how do I get to them if the vent door covers them when closed and pretty much covers them when open?
Abe, Here's a tip for you. The screws in the lid don't have to come out all the way. Just loosen them a bit and you can slide the screw heads out through the larger part of the screw holes in the hinge. I knew this but still forgot once and in the process broke off a head or two, when I didn't have to.
